Infant passes away after car accident

Tragically, an infant in Florida has passed away following a car accident. She was just six months old. Her mother, who works at the Okaloosa County School District, was on maternity leave.

After the accident, the young child was rushed to Sacred Heart Hospital, which is located in Pensacola, by a medical helicopter. She survived for a few days and then passed away at the medical center.

Both of the girl's parents were with her in the vehicle at the time of the accident. They were all in a small sedan, going down State Road 85, when reports indicate that an SUV turned into their path. This happened at the intersection where SR85 meets John King Road.

The driver of the SUV was a 77-year-old woman. She had two passengers. All six people -- the three in the SUV, the infant, and the infant's parents -- were taken to various medical centers. Reports indicate that all but the infant were treated and then released.

Police have said that there are pending charges at this time, as the investigation into the crash is carried out. Reports do claim that the infant had been properly strapped into a car seat in the sedan.

The school where the mother works put out a statement calling the incident a terribly tragedy.

Losing a child in a car accident is something that can change a parent's life in a split second. Financial compensation can never erase that, but there are many medical costs associated with such an accident, and it may be wise for parents who have lost children to know what legal options they have.
